Local Activities

Ideally located between the foothills of Snowdonia and the sandy beaches of the Irish Sea Glanafon Cottage is the perfect base for everything North Wales has to offer.

The most obvious activity is of course Zip World, an experience everyone should have on their bucket list. But what else is on offer...

The cottage is surrounded by some amazing nature and mountain walks. From the tranquil nature reserves of Aberogwen and Aber Falls to the rocky peaks of the Carneddau and Glyderau mountains to name just a few, there's something for everyone.

For the even more adventurous there is arguably the best climbing the uk has to offer and some world class mountain bike trail centres just a short drive away.

If you are a beach lover then look no further. 

All within a 25 minute drive we have Newborough 

(a walk to Llandwyn island is an absolute must), Cable Bay, Llanddona, Aberffraw, Rhosneigr and many more. The beaches of Anglesey offer all you need for a fun family day out, but don't forget your surfboard!

Then when it's time to unwind you can sample some famous Welsh cuisine at award winning restaurants in Menai Bridge and Beaumaris. Or enjoy the pubs and takeaways that Bethesda has to offer right from your doorstep.

If you time your stay right we also have Neuadd Ogwen just around the corner, showcasing some of the most bohemian acts around. You can be guaranteed to have a night you'll never forget.
